An elegant vintage for us and for people who prefer the classics over the blockbuster...
About The Wine
Pinot Noir is what the Mount Edward crew are obsessed with.
There's a lot of different pieces that come together in this wine.
Some portions are fermented as 100% whole bunches, some are fully destemmed, the different batches are hand plunged, everything is fermented using wild yeasts. The final wine is assembled by Duncan Forsyth & Anna Riederer.
The immaculate balance of the finished wine is quite astonishing when you look at it. It's an elegant and refined style of Pinot Noir with a bit of a wild streak.
About Mount Edward
Mount Edward is a team of passionate winemakers/rabble-rousers who have banded together to form a collective that is considered at the forefront of the Central Otago avant-garde.
Duncan Forsyth is one of the founders and spearheads this revolutionary project, with Swiss winemaker Anna Riederer heading up the day-to-day duties and crafting the wines.
They've made plenty of noise since the project's inception in 2003 when Duncan met co-founder John Buchanan.
Though they don't take themselves too seriously, the wine themselves are very serious indeed and a receiving plenty of attention.
